If you are single and looking for a break from the daily grind, you surely do not want to end up at a couple's only resort. Instead, check out one of these vacation ideas for some excitement and potentially some chemistry.
If you prefer getting out of your comfort zone but not too much, visit a foreign country where English is one of the main languages, like Canada or Britain. Different countries hold a beauty all their own, from cultural differences, old historic monuments and the hustle and bustle of big cities. Be sure to check out popular single hot spots like a local disco club. No matter where you decide to spend your time, there is plenty to see and do in a foreign country, including finding other singles.
Try the Beach
There is a reason Hawaii is one of the top travel destinations. The pristine beaches, clear waters, lush rain forests and the infectious Mahalo spirit have visitors wanting to come back before they leave. Start with selecting an island or islands to visit. Stay on the big island for volcanoes, visit Maui if you enjoy snorkeling and some of nature's wonders--Haleakala Crater, the rain forests and waterfalls on the road to Hana. Try Oahu for art galleries, shopping and a bit of history with the USS Arizona and stay on Kauai or Molokai for solitude and lots of hiking opportunities.
Any popular beach will be loaded with other singles. If you are not comfortable striking up conversation, sign up for group surfing lessons or a luau to meet other singles from the islands or visiting from other places, like you.
If you want to go somewhere that is not littered with tourists and tourist traps, go somewhere to find like-minded nature lovers. Take a trip to the mountains and sign up for a group hike or mountain biking trek. If you prefer going underground, stay somewhere near a cave where spelunking is a popular activity. Another option is to sign up for a weeklong hike in an exotic location. You will certainly get up close and personal with lots of other people, including other singles with a trek on the Inca trail.
A perfect place to meet lots of people is on a cruise. Everyone is secluded on the boat with limited options for restaurants, activities and lounging, so you are bound to run into the same people over and over. Another bonus is that the places you will be stopping at are usually little pieces of paradise where you can share a day on the beach or an afternoon walking around the town with a new friend.
